Do not think evil of others – by Sant Kirpal Singh


 

An excerpt from the book: “Morning Talks” – by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

Once Akbar, who was a great Emperor of India, was told by his minister that thoughts were very potent and that great care should be taken in what we think of others. Akbar asked his minister how he knew this. The minister said, “All right, I will give you a concrete example. Let us go outside.” So both of them went outside and they saw one man coming towards them at a distance of a few furlongs. The minister said to the king, “Look here, just think something about this man in your mind and when he comes near, you might ask him what crossed his mind at that time. You are only to look and think.” The king thought in his mind that this man should be shot. The man approached the king and the king asked him, “When you saw my face, what thoughts crossed your mind?” The man said, “Emperor, excuse me, but I thought that I should beat you with my fists and break your head.” So thoughts are very potent. If you think evil of others, the other man will react. You should be careful how you speak to people. If you speak ill to another and say “You are a fool” and things like that, or if somebody calls you a name and you react in the same way, what is the result? There will be a flare-up. A man calls you once, twice and that results in a fight. This is by words, their very root is the thought. A man speaks out of the abundance of his heart. Whatever is lying there, those things take the form of words, then words lead to fighting. So don’t hurt the feelings of others, in thought, word or deed.

 

 

Inner journey


 

The source of sunbeams
Is the sun
Divided rivers
Of attention
Flow in all directions
Of the world – source:
Ocean of consciousness

When jamming all the waters
From all rivers
Leaving this source
Flowing outside
Attention remains
Self-centered
Changing the direction
From out to in

Concentrated
As one attention
Inward journey
Through astral,
Causal, super-causal worlds
To the plane
Of pure consciousness
Nacked reality

Putting off the dresses
Of physical, astral,
Causal, super-causal bodies
While the inner journey continues

From there the real journey begins
To one’s eternal home – to the Absolute God…

Story: Buddha rejects present


 

An Excerpt of the book “Morning Talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh

 

 

A man once went to Lord Buddha and began to insult Him like anything. He went on in this way for one, two, three hours, until it got dark. When night fell, he wanted to go away. So Lord Buddha said, “Well dear friend, just tell me one thing.” The man asked what Buddha wanted to know, to which Buddha replied, “If anybody brings some present to somebody and if that person does not accept it, with whom is it left?” The man replied, “With the person who brings that present.” “Well,” said Buddha, “the present you have brought, I don’t accept it.”

 

 

 

 

 

Love for God


 

The water is running
From top of the mountain
And so is God’s grace
From heaven to earth

Separating love is
No love, is limited

Do we build houses to put
The foundation stone at last?

Do we start loving a few like
Family, friends, spouses
And forget the rest?

When we start loving God
It is the foundation stone
For the home of love
Offering space for everyone

Signalling eyes


 

Eyes in Eyes
Searching
Inviting each other
What a beautiful world

Eyes questioning
Careful touching
Lovely happiness
What a hidden exchange

Eyes in eyes
Hesitating whispering
Creative music
What a bliss

Eyes in Eyes
Getting lost
Only slightly touch
What a poor world

Eyes alienating
Disengaged in the moment
Loss of happiness
What a lost opportunity

Spirituality

Perhaps it will not be out of place to explain here the meaning of the term “spirituality,” which is often confused with blind faith in sacred books, a display of miracles, psychic phenomena, or yogic powers. Spirituality is an inner experience and its alphabet begins where all philosophy and yoga practices end. It is the experience of the soul. When one says, “I am the body,” it is a feeling based on the intellect and is defined as ignorance. When he says, “I am not the body, I am an awakened soul,” it is learnt knowledge or theory only; but when he gets an actual experience of the soul by self-analysis and contacts the Overself, it is called spirituality. The first practical lesson commences when there is a complete withdrawal from the physical body through the kindness of a practical Master. No one can withdraw and separate himself from the physical body unaided. If anyone claims otherwise and thinks that he can, he but deceives himself. All attempts without the assistance of a Master, who alone is qualified to impart this experience, will end in failure. Masters come to distribute this treasure of spiritual blessings to seekers after truth.

Spirituality cannot be bought or taught, but it can be caught by contact with spiritual people. Moreover, nature’s gifts such as air, water, light, etc., are free. Spirituality is also nature’s gift and is also given free by the Masters. Likewise, spirituality cannot be acquired from books, which is a fact all sacred scriptures uphold. Books are a valuable record of the inner experiences of others in spirituality. They fill up gaps in history and contain messages from past Masters, which help us to verify the facts revealed by a living Master, thus confirming our faith in the science. Man is confused by the various translations, interpretations and expositions, each different from the other, which instead of relieving his mind, tend rather to bewilder and confuse him. His egoism too has created hundreds of religious circles, whose aim is aloofness and narrow orthodoxy instead of love, and insularity instead of integration. Torn between conflicting emotions, men develop hatred and think of war.

For an understanding of the science of the Masters, we attend Satsang, where the majority of our doubts are cleared. Direct answers from the Master will help to remove any remaining doubts. All questions receive the same calm consideration and no arguments are offered. Rich or poor, high or low, all receive equal attention in the same manner as a doctor should attend to the sick. A true Master views a man’s rights and wrongs as clearly as one sees the contents of a glass jar, but He reveals nothing. Sitting before Him, even those who do not understand His language are benefited, just as one in a perfumer’s shop enjoys the smell of sweet scents. The Master showers blessings through His looks, which the eager ones catch. His eyes are a wonderful spray of love.

On a larger as well as on a smaller scale


Nations fight nations
Towns in rivalry
Hate arises
Violence at the horizon

Villages set boundaries
Sports atrophied into enemies
Exciting the minds
Polluting hearts

Families fight families
Blood-filled hatred
Tear the right
Trample on respect, human values

Bothers and sister
Clashing minds
Radiate their ego:
Envy and competion

Where lies this evil?
In our own mind
Root of good and evil
Changing in the wind

Time to get down
To the root of our troubles
Time to understand
Who we really are…

Man know thyself…

Pride between opinions


 

Opposing views
May be so much repelling
That they create huge walls
Between themselves and human beings

It is the pride
That lies in-between
Inability, attachment
Blocking them to come closer

Old paths well-trodden
Unproved, unchecked adopted
With little or no experiences
Teeth defended grindingly

Built on half-truths and less
Binding affinities
Clinging to personal conviction
Lashed views

Oneness broken in opinions
Show that something is wrong
When people go apart
Leave the circle of unity

Separation versus Unity


 

There are many trees in a forest
And so are many people in this world
The tree does not see the forest
And man does not see mankind
The single drop separates from the water
Searching for the water
But we all are One
One forest
One mankind
One water

Separation is fear, is ego, is shadow
Unity is love, consciousness, life and light

Should we continue to live in this shadow
In the mirror of our mind?

Our destination is –
See Oneness
Understand Oneness
Live Oneness

Once we see, understand, live Oneness
We become Oneness…

Message of goodwill


 

 

Usually we have good thoughts for our dear ones
Let us widen our horzont
To give room for the whole world
For good thoughts, words and deeds to everyone

A message that should go
From heart to heart
Torchbearer of light
To bring love in every house

No more violent thoughts
No more harsh words
But kindness and love
Respect and goodwill

Or do we want to be a mirror
Of our bad thoughts?…

Preliminary Qualifications for an Aspirant

Just as in any other science, certain preliminary qualifications are required before much progress can be made. Married life, hard work, or a poor environment are no bar. It does not count in your favour that you may hold a high position or possess immense wealth. Neither does membership in a particular faith serve as a recommendation. Wherever he may be, a man must strive for nobility of character, self-control and purity of heart. Purity of heart in thought, word, and deed, is essential. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” An ethical life is a stepping stone to spirituality, but spirituality, however, is not just ethical living. This we must always bear in mind.

We can divide man’s life into (i) diet, and (ii) his dealings with others. With regard to diet, vegetarianism and abstinence from alcohol and drugs are essential. ”Thou shalt not kill” and “Live and let live” should be our principles in life. The body is the temple of God and is a sacred place. We are not to neglect or abuse it, but should take the best possible care to properly maintain it. All intoxicants are also to be avoided as they make us morbid and of shaky consciousness. With regard to our dealings with others, we should sow the seed of kindness in order to reap its fruit. Love and humility are most necessary. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” ”Love, and all blessing shall be added unto you.” “Love thine enemy, and do good to them that despitefully use you.” God is immanent in every form and whoever loves God, must love God’s creation. To love God is to love all humanity. We should also earn our living by the sweat of our brow and share with others. These are not empty sayings, but very wise and sound advice.

 

Karma (Actions and Deeds)

Each thought, each word and each deed has to be accounted for and compensated for in nature. Every cause has an effect and every action brings about a reaction. Uproot the cause and the effect disappears. This has been done by the Masters who have transcended these laws, but all others are bound by the bonds of Karma, which is the root cause of physical existence and the clever device of nature to maintain this existence. The law of Karma sees to it that we are paid an eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth, in the shape of joy or suffering. It is the goading whip in the hidden hands of nature. The mind contracts Karma, puts a covering on the soul and rules the body through the organs and the senses. Although it is the soul that imparts strength to the mind, the latter has assumed sovereignty and is governing the soul instead. Control of the mind, therefore, is the first step to spirituality. Victory over the mind is victory over the world. Even accomplished yogis and mystics who can transcend to relatively high spiritual realms are not left untouched by the hand of Karma.

 

Saints classify Karmas into three distinct groups, as follows:

  • (i) Sanchit (stored)

Good or bad deeds that stand to our account as earned and contracted in all previous bodies of the order of creation, counting from the day of the first appearance of life on earth. Alas! Man knows nothing about them or their extent.

  • (ii) Prarabdha (Fate or Destiny)

The result and effect of which has brought man into his present body and has to be paid off in this life. The reactions of these Karmas come to us unexpectedly and unperceived and we have no control over them whatsoever. Good or bad, we have to tolerate or bear this Karma laughing or weeping, as it happens to suit us.

  • (iii) Kriyaman (Account of our actions and deeds in the present body)

This is distinct from the above mentioned two groups because here man is free to do exactly as he pleases, within certain limits. Knowingly or unknowingly, deeds committed and coming under this heading bear fruit. The result of some of these we reap before we die and the residue is transferred to the Sanchit storehouse.

Karma is the cause of rebirth and each birth is in turn followed by death. Thus the cycle of enjoyment and suffering, which are concomitants of birth and death, continues. “As you think, so you become,” is an unalterable law of nature, owing to which this universe exists. No amount of integrity or genius can absolve a man so long as there is the slightest trace of Karma. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and though there may be some concession or relaxation with man-made laws under special circumstances, there is no such allowance made for this in nature’s laws. Prayer, confession and atonement may give temporary mental relief but they cannot overcome Karma. All Karma must be wiped out completely before permanent salvation can be had.

Disturbed by these facts, man seeks solace in deep pious doctrines, or when he comes to know that both good and bad deeds are fetters – one of gold, the other of iron – he turns to renunciation. Different faiths promise relief but he soon finds out that this is only temporary. How then does a Master approach this problem? At the time of Initiation, the Master begins the process of winding up all Karmas of the initiate. He gives him a contact with the sound current, by practicing which the Sanchit account is burnt away. The process is similar to putting a handful of seeds in a pan and placing them on a fire, which causes the seeds to puff up and lose their property of growing again. Then the Kriyaman account is dealt with. After warning his disciples to guard against opening any new account of bad deeds, the Master grants a general clemency in respect of past deeds, part of which the disciple has already settled in this life up to the time of Initiation. He is enjoined to lead a clean life and to weed out all imperfections in him by self-introspection from day to day. The Prarabdha Karma is not touched by Saints because this is the cause of the physical body, which would vanish due to the interference with nature’s laws. Thus a very small amount of Karma now remains to be tolerated in the physical body for the remaining years of the disciple’s life, but even this is softened by the grace of the Master.

The law of grace works wonders and a devotee who, out of loving devotion, reposes all his hopes in the Master, passes off unscathed from the pinching effects of the reactions of past Karmas. In moments of misery, worry and trouble, the Master is our refuge. He acts unperceived at any distance. Just as a mother of a sick child holds the child securely in her lap during an operation so that it does not feel any pain, so too the Master holds us in his loving embrace. Out of their abundance of sympathy, love and kindness, the Saints at times take upon their own shoulders some Karmic sufferings of their disciples through the law of sympathy. There is no court of trial after death for a devoted disciple. The Master is all in all for him.

Why does a Master Saint take all this on Himself? Because He inherits His merciful nature from God above, who commissions Him to personally distribute this treasure of mercy. Thus the Master is honoured like God. Sant Mat has volumes of books written in praise of the Masters, and if just as many books were to be written, it would hardly do justice to the vastness of their love and kindness.

Time casts its heavy shadow over man. He has to work hard to keep pace with the changing times. So deeply is he absorbed in his external needs and desires that he forgets all about contentment, sympathy and love. Entangled and surrounded by the “deadly five” – lust, anger, greed, attachment and vanity – he stumbles and cries out to the Unseen for help. Heaven’s mercy is stirred and as times stiffen, the Almighty extends His help through the Masters more and more lavishly. Such is the case in this Kali Yuga – the Iron Age.

It is indeed very hard to believe that anyone can be above the five passions mentioned above, and that he can enter the Kingdom of Heaven during his lifetime. All mankind is under the control of these five and only a Master can save a man from their clutches. We all demand reliable proof before committing ourselves, and this is given by a Master in the shape of an experience of the life impulse or Naam (the Word) and some inner vision. Contact with a Master is essential. Those who keep aloof and depend on themselves or rely on tradition and priests – equally ignorant as themselves – are deprived of contact with this Power; and as the saying goes, “When the blind leads the blind, both fall into the ditch”.

Indifference, non-acceptance or disbelief will not be to our advantage when nature enforces its universal ordinance – death. Our position will be that of a pigeon who, on seeing a cat approaching, shuts its eyes and believes that the cat cannot then molest it; but in a few seconds the poor bird is in the powerful jaws of the cat. It is then too late to think of escape. So be alert while there is yet time!

Appeal to all adults


 
 

work and merit
 

Hello, adults all over the world
Adopt the attitude of the children
They have no borders to each other
No skin-colour that separates them

They do not threaten themselves
To kill each other
They speak and play in tune with their heart
Never get apart

Hello, adults all over the world
Children are our future, our love
Not our destruction, but our hope
Living innocence, colour of nativeness

Children know only one language:
The language of the heart
Understanding among each other
Originality lost in grown-ups

Hello, adults all over the world
Burry your weapons and be like a child
Put your heads and hearts together
To save the human race from perishing

We all are sitting in the same school
We have much to learn from our children…
